and in an open memo to interested parties, senior advisor david axelrod just as he was in the primaries, we expect mitt romney to be a prepared, disciplined, and aggressive debater. joining me now is someone who knows a thing or two about expectations and debates, republican senator john mccain. a little trip down memory lane there. you smiled during it, i thought that was interesting. you debated both. size up the debate. >> i think it will be excellent. i think both candidates are well prepared, and understandably, you'll see their sur gats lowering expectations. i don't know how our guy will compete, and that's part of the whole routine. >> who is the tougher debater? >> i think both are excellent in their own way. i think you could argue that mitt has had a lot more recent experience, obviously, but also, candy, part of it depends on who is moderating. >> oh, thanks. >> i don't want to put any pressure on you, but the tenor of the questions and all that are dictated. second of all, i think sometimes we expect a major breakthrough, you know, a comment. that doesn't happen very often. it
cautious? obama's senior advisor david axelrod is here next. the pace of change is accelerating. the way we... perform, compete and grow. and people are driving this change. that's the power of human resources. the society... for human resource management and its members know... how to harness that power, because we help develop it. from the next economy, to the next generation, we help get... the most out of business, by getting the best out of people. shrm. leading people, leading organizations. why they're always there to talk. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than just circuits and wires! uhhh. (cries) a machine can't give you what a person can. that's why ally has knowledgeable people there for you, night and day. ally bank. your money needs an ally. so i brought it to mike at meineke. we gave her car a free road handling check. i like free. free is good. my money. my choice. my meineke. >> i am joined by a senior advisor david axelrod. i want to pick up on what john mccain and i were talking about. there's back a
and obama's senior adviser david axelrod praised it as well suggesting it was oscar-worthy, though not worthy of the white house. due to some basic problems with simple veracity. >> i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. i can't understand how you can cut medicare $716 billion for current recipients of medicare. pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. an unelected board, appointed board who are going to decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. >> not true, not true, not true, not true. and since mr. romney got the last word at the debate last night, why don't we give the last word today to the president. >> he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. so governor romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth. >> well said, mr. president. let's get right to our panel. in washington form eer communications director and msnbc political analyst karen finney, and in philadelphia professor james peterson of lehigh university and a regular contributor to thegrio.com.
and thcandatescampgn. untahameans you can't sit down with david axelrod and say, okay, we're all going to focus on bain. can't you just go second? can't you wait to see what the obama campaign is doing d copy them and backstop them. >> this has be a big disadvantaorhe rli si i feel bad for our counterparts over there. if you watch the romney campaign, what do you think mitt romney's message and strategy is? there's a week in august where crossroads had an ad up about the debt. an ad up aboutobs. amicanr pe w advertising on solyndra. mitt romney was advertising on welfare reform. if you're on the superpac side trying to figure out what they're trying to get across, you have no idea. welfare reform, $10 million behind that? seriously? >> the romney campaign has had trouble stays on message, th w has been fun.ng if they could stick with it, couldn't they and couldn't you just choose to backstop whatever the campaign is doing, therefore colluding only in public by the virtue of the fact you were r, abteouv? you knows the truth is there is an arc of a story that you try to tell. there is an art to the story
david axelrod. we expect mitt romney to be prepared disciplined and aggressive debater. governor pawlenty said he is as good as it gets in debating. maybe this is why the romney campaign predicted he will turn in a campaign changing performance such as ronald reagan's in 1980. here is the truth about obama and romney, neither a stellar debater. obama didn't shine in the democratic primary debates, biden won them. that's why obama picked biden. candidate obama had a tendency to ramble in the debates, got better during mccain one on ones. while romney did well in this season's gop debates, had rough performances, bet you $10,000 he did. romney performances, the unspoken body language that the camera captured, they were brutal against ted kennedy. ivy league will enjoy biden versus ryan more. trust me. >>> turning back to the brand new battleground polls. there's a different pattern emerging, president obama is ahead in new hampshire, tighter in nevada and north carolina. joining me, director of the marist poll. good to see you in person. >> welcome to the home of the new york yanke
expect a 90-minute attack ad. david axelrod not to be outdone by the obama campaign. saying we expect mitt romney to be prepared, disciplined and aaggressive. the first debate generally favor challengers. both sides are trying to manage expectations here? >> absolutely. >> this guy's really good. >> how do we get in the ring with him all of a sudden? >> right. >> they're skilled on their feet. that's how they got this far. i don't know that the second and third debate will matter that much for governor romney if there isn't something significant out of debate number one. >> i agree. >> it's not because of the president is running ahead now. people are voting now. what those polls tell us is this the way it's going down as we speak. >> david, what do you think? do you think that the debate next wednesday could be some sort of game changer, or do you think we're perhaps reading way too much into it and this thing is probably already set in stone? >> nothing is ever set in stone. i agree with my colleague who said voting has already started. 40% of voters probably will vote early in this
. just a thought. >> david axelrod said today that they made a strategic decision they weren't going to fact check mitt romney. mitt romney's entire campaign is based on mendacity. their convention was themed on a lie. might i submit to you that fact checking him might be the right way to go. >> i hate the word like to enter the discussion but so many things had nothing to do with mitt romney's reality. the president had opportunity after opportunity to go after romney on his policies, but he wasn't taking the bait. here are some issues he could have pounced on romney for. let's watch. >> i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. with regards to young people coming along, i have got proposals to make sure medicare and social security are there for them without any question. number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. if i'm president, i will create -- help create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes. >> governor, i don't know how he got away with it. i don't know why the pr
today. seen jnior obama adviser david axelrod admitted the president can't let romney's lies go unchecked next time around. >> he made a choice last night to answer the questions that were asked and to talk to the american people about what we need to do to move forward and not to get into serial fact-checking with governor romney, which can be an exhausting, never-ending, pursuit. but obviously moving forward, you know, we're going to take a hard look at this. >> no doubt, last night was a moment of disappointment for progressives in this country. but it's not a moment of defeat. it is the only time really that mitt romney has had even a slice of momentum in the last six months. he has the wind at his back because he lied really well and wasn't challenged on all of his falsehoods. there just wasn't enough time to do it all. the fundment ls of the race, my friends, have simply not changed. liberals need to temper their frustration from last night and look at the big picture. we need to insist mitt romney does not get a pass of any blatant lies of the future. fortunately, it look
it seems like both david axelrod on the record and based on my conversations and the president's performance, it seemed like he just wanted to take what was presented whatever topic either jim herrer or governor romney brought up that's where the president was going to play defense and push back. he did not try to turn anything. i can't really explain why he didn't but it certainly didn't serve him well. there's a reason they've driven women's issue and the 47% and done it feb tifkly, why he thought the debate wasn't the place to drive those, i do not know. >> david brooks column in "the new york times" says that on wednesday night romney finally emerged from the fog, broke with the stereotypes of his party and long last began the process of offering a more authentic version of himself. susan? >> 34 days before the election. talk about waiting until the last minute to do so. you know, one of the things he did, mark made the point that maybe the move to the center wasn't quite as stark as some people are portraying it. wasn't this the tonal change we thought we would see last sp
. here's the thing i don't understand. i understand that means you can't sit down with david axelrod and say, okay, we're all going to focus on in can'you wait toee what the obama campaign is doing and copy them and backstop them. >> this has been a big disadvantage for the republican side. i feel bad for our counterparts over there. if you watch the romney campaign, what do yo think mitt ?omney's messa and sateg e' wnus wre crossroads had an ad up about the debt. an ad up about jobs. americans for prosperity was advertising on solyndra. mitt romney was advertising on welfare reform. if you're on the superpac side tr tgureut w the ng g across, yohave no idea. welfare reform, $10 million behind that? seriously? >> the romney campaign has had trouble stays on message, picking a message and sticking with it, which has bn fun. if they couldtick with it, couldn't ty cn'u st choose to backstop whatever the campaign is doing, therefore colluding only in public by the virtue of the fact you were tching tv? >> right, you absolutely could. you know, the truth is, you know, there's an ark of a
for mitt, but it's like david axelrod said, give this a second and as we have we see how it has been so thoroughly fact checked that they are going to use this stuff in ad now. >> caller: yeah, even today, though, most of the networks are still claiming romney is a win. which makes me wonder what is their criteria? because he got up there and lied. bullied the debate the moderator, the president. he took the opposite side of his own platform. he applied the criticisms that he is getting to the president, like the fact that he is making up facts and wants to cut medicare benefits. it just doesn't look like a win to me. >> stephanie: i'll tell you what is a win unemployment rate drops to 7.8%. >> caller: i love it but they are now saying it is a conspiracy. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: it just makes my head want to split open and my eyeballs drop out of my head. >> stephanie: that's so unlady like. >> mitt romney said that is not enough. >> stephanie: oh, okay. because john sununu said he is lazy and stupid. romney walked back his own tax plan telling president obama

as mr. whipple, david axelrod. remember those old commercials? don't squeeze the sharman? i swear it is his doppelgÄnger. we're all squeeze now. that's the problem. when you look to piers morgan, the siphon off his time. it's not so much she's interviewing a guest, he's actually interviewing himself. this is where we will the clip. >> i always feel he's got so many pluses. he's handsome, he can be funny, he has this great image for america, but a lot of things are just perfect about barack obama. [applause] >> i don't know, we've got a lot of men in this room. how many times, look around you at the table, everybody is a different look, it's a mature children it doesn't matter which look on the outside, matters who you are in the insight, your heart, whether you walk us christ upon july. i tried to make is that. then, look around you at the table, how many of you would let the word strip off your tongue, gosh he's handsome.
